Olmec Egyptian


egyptian-olmec

This woman’s ancestry would be a mix between the ancient Egyptian and Olmec ethnic groups, with her attire honoring both halves of her heritage. What I basically wanted to do was combine the Egyptian and Mesoamerican cultures and represent them together in the form of one individual. It was slightly challenging to pick a “right” skin tone that would be intermediate between those of the indigenous Egyptians and Olmecs, but juxtaposing different cultures like this can be great fun.
